Wonderful barbecue with a great vinegar sauce which made plain thin store bought white bread a delicacy! We will go again!

As other Trip Advisor reviewers have indicated, the food here is quite good. We had a pork and a rib dinner accompanied by collard greens and black eyed peas. The ribs were perfect....meat didn't fall off the bones but came off easily when I was ready for it!! The pork was equally perfect with an interesting sauce...somewhat thin and vinegar... More

Locals had recommended this place which is so small I drove by it the first time around. Delicious ribs, collard greens, and the catfish was the best I've ever had. Free refills of fountain diet dew top off the experience.

This place looked like a little shack and we were a little nervous to go in. However, the friendly waitress and the good food made it worth the venture inside.

This visit was at building #2. It is a small area to eat inside-maybe seats 20. Take out seems to be way to go. They have an extensive menu. The prices for what you get are a great deal ! I had the 6pc jumbo hot wings...they were good! A new spin of the sauce. It was a hot sauce... More

Food is PERFECT, sause is outstanding. Service is top notch---inside is clean, well equipped and vintage family place. I had the ribs-- one letter decribes them MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! I cannot...

I am big on reading reviews and have wanted to go to this place for a long time. Yesterday I read all the reviews and decided to go. What a disappointment! The sauce was really good, a little thin but had good little kick. Ribs where ok. The pork for a true bbq joint, it was below average. I was... More

I ordered their hot dog plate. The hot dog was skillet fried; not grilled, even though I could see the grill in the kitchen from where I was sitting. The hot dog was over cooked and scorched on the outside. The hot dog bun had been stored in either a refrigerator or freezer; not fresh. The potatoe salad was minimally... More
